On The Edge Graphics
Hand Drawn or Painted Portraits
My name is Linda Edge. I live on the Isle of Wight and I sketch and paint portraits. It all started three years ago when my sister wrote a children's book and asked me to illustrate it, as I was free to use. I'd not sketched with pencils before and I received such lovely compliments about my work which friends and family encouraged me to print onto cards. These are now sold in several outlets across the island.
Friends then started asking me to sketch their pets and 3 years on I'm now busy full time sketching and painting. I have also just started sketching human portraits and motor vehicles after several requests. I use graphite pencils for animal and human portraits. These sketches come mounted. I also produce multi coloured and natural pet paintings on canvas using acrylics.
Please see below a few examples of my work and if you Enter My Shop you will see more examples along with my prices. I'm a very keen fundraiser and have been involved with many charities over the years so 10% of any money I make goes to Island charities.
